Musings: Well, it was an interesting idea…

Authored by Christina

We interrupt our reminiscence about Bordeaux to share musings from the “What were they thinking?” file.  (Technically, I suppose it could be the “What was I thinking?” file…)

On the way to dinner with a girlfriend last night, I stopped by the store to grab some last minute items for dinner.  Standing at the checkout at one of Seattle’s nicer grocery stores, I perused the chocolates to grab a nibble of dessert for after dinner.

That’s when this caught my eye.  Point Reyes Original Blue Cheese Wine Grapes.  Yup.  You’ve got it.

The exclusive, and apparently award-winning (?!) chocolate-covered Point Reyes Original Blue Cheese Wine Grape.  I know what you’re thinking.  All the great food groups in one place – what’s not to love??

I was intrigued – could they really make this work?  I was having dinner with a friend in the wine business, so I knew she’d be game to try it.

All the best ingredients in one place, what's not to love?
It seemed like a good idea at the time…

And now we know.  I did NOT love this.

Has anyone else been “brave” enough to try this delicacy?  If not, you can thank me later for “undiscovering” this for you.  If you have tried it, I’d love to hear how you would describe the “intense” flavors on the palate…
